(Lockdown began the following day)
2020 was going to be a spectacular year after the years of austerity.
Highlights were to be the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, shows in Singapore, Belgium and Germany,
concerts at The Jazz Centre, The Pheasantry, The Hampstead Jazz Club, The Pizza Express Jazz Clubs,
as well as an array of comedy spots in various venues.
As with many other performers, everything was cancelled at a stroke, and,
since as a free-lance performer I'm not in 'business',
there was zero financial help from the Tory government.
To ensure sanity, all I could do was to record some tracks that I'd arranged in the local studio,
complete a new CD ,
JAZZ FROM A BASEMENT
(now on Spotify, Apple etc.)
and begin another.
A year on and is SEEMS that the world will return to some form of normality,
so here are my first bookings for 2021.
Let's hope that they don't have to be cancelled.
